‘School violence’ Lee Dong-kwan, ‘extreme right’ Kim Young-ho, and ‘profanity’ Yoo In-chon… 野 ” MB Government Season 2″
Ministers and vice ministers of 13 ministries out of 18 are MB men… “Experienced workers are being recalled as the talent pool is small”
Recently, there has been a trend in which personnel from the Lee Myung-bak ( MB ) administration are being appointed to key positions in the Yoon Seok-yeol administration. Following Chairman Lee Dong-kwan of the Korea Communications Commission and Minister of Unification Kim Young-ho, In the second cabinet reshuffle, Special Assistant to the President for Culture and Sports Yoo In-chon was appointed to the position of Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism (Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism). What they all have in common is that they have been involved in various controversies. Nevertheless, why is he being recalled to a key position again? The ruling party highly values their experience and expertise, but the opposition party argues that this is because there are not many talented people with experience in government administration among President Yoon’s close associates.
Yu In-chon “Don’t take pictures, ×× !”… Kim Young-ho said, “If the people exercise their sovereignty, there will be anarchy.”
On the 13th, President Yoon Seok-yeol nominated People Power Party lawmaker Shin Won-sik, Special Advisor Yoo In-chon, and former People Power Emergency Response Committee member Kim Haeng as candidates for the Minister of National Defense, Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, and Ministry of Gender Equality and Family, respectively. In particular, Candidate Yoo was selected as the Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism two months after being appointed as a special advisor in July. Kim Dae-gi, Chief of Staff of the President’s Office, who announced the appointment, introduced, “Candidate Yoo is a person who not only has understanding and insight into the field of culture and arts, but also has policy capabilities as he served as a minister in the past.”
However, Candidate Yoo faced opposition from the opposition party immediately after his nomination. This is because he was on the chopping block for causing a lot of controversy, including the ‘profanity scandal’, when he was the first Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism in the MB government. Candidate Yoo was criticized by the public for pointing a point at reporters during the National Assembly audit in October 2008 and saying, “Don’t take pictures! ×× !” In addition, he caused controversy when it was reported that he had demanded that “all members of the Roh Moo-hyun administration should voluntarily resign.” MB
with ‘risk’Candidate Yoo is not the only person responsible for personnel matters. Previously, Chairman Lee Dong-kwan also faced backlash due to the controversy over his son’s school violence and suspicions of soliciting his spouse’s personnel. In August, due to strong opposition from the opposition, the personnel hearing report was not even adopted, and he barely took office through the president’s appointing authority. Minister Kim Young-ho brought controversy upon himself with his far-right remarks. In particular, even after taking office, Minister Kim received criticism from the opposition party by saying in a National Assembly inquiry, “If all the people exercise their power as sovereigns, there will be anarchy.” In addition to these, many MB
government figures , including Prime Minister Han Deok-soo and Deputy Prime Minister for Social Affairs and Social Affairs Lee Joo-ho, are serving in key positions. According to Sisa Journal’s coverage, it was confirmed that Kim Hyo-jae, a former standing member of the Korea Communications Commission who served as senior secretary for political affairs in the MB government, was actually nominated for the position of chairman of the Korea Press Foundation.
“He is new to politics and seems to have no connections or anyone to trust.”
Opposition figures criticized this, saying it was ‘MB government 안전놀이터season 2’. Park Sung-joon, spokesperson for the Democratic Party of Korea, met with reporters before the cabinet reshuffle on the 13th and harshly criticized them, saying, “These are people who have continued to speak ‘old’ style greetings, ‘bad’ greetings, and bad language.” Jang Gyeong-tae, a top member of the Democratic Party, said in a phone call with Sisa Journal that day, ” MB men (personnel) have been deployed from the cabinet to the media. The ‘Lee Dong-gwan – Yoo In-chon – Kim Hyo-jae’ three-tier media control MB puzzle has been completed.”
In the political world, some argue that the reason pro-Lee figures continue to appear is because there are not many talented people with experience in government administration among President Yoon’s associates. At a floor plan meeting on the 14th, floor leader Park Gwang-on said, “We need to expand the talent pool. The ministers and vice ministers of at least 13 of the 18 ministries are members of the Lee Myung-bak administration . ” “This is why there is criticism,” he pointed out.
With the so-called ‘Yoon Haek-gwan’ (President Yoon’s key official) declaring that he will not hold public office, there is also speculation that President Yoon, a political newcomer, will have no choice but to rely on experienced MB government figures.Was it an appropriate choice to rearrange senior officials at this time? “I am curious about President Yoon’s intentions,” he criticized.
Some experts are also pointing out that President Yoon, who declared ‘new politics’, is reverting to ‘old-fashioned appointments’. Political critic Park Sang-byeong said in a phone call, “President Yoon Seok-yeol, who is not a politician. He asserted, “I have no personal connections,” and added, “In the end, we have no choice but to call out figures from the past conservative administration, and the personnel during the Park Geun-hye administration fell due to impeachment.” He then added, “Then, the remaining card that fits President Yoon’s ideology is ‘MB Man . ‘ “It’s just that,” he claimed.
